{17:78} Establish prayer at the decline of the sun [from its meridian] until the darkness of the night and [also] the Quran of dawn. Indeed, the recitation of dawn is ever witnessed.

I suggest,
{17:78} Establish prayer at the decline of the sun until the dark cover of the night and [also establish] reading of the Quran of dawn. Verily, reading of the Quran at dawn is ever witnessed.

Quote:
{17:79} And from [part of] the night, pray with it as additional [worship] for you; it is expected that your Lord will resurrect you to a praised station.

I suggest,
{17:79} And [a portion] of the night, spend it in prayer, an extra for you, perhaps your Lord will send you out [on the Day of Resurrection to] a praised station.

Quote:
{17:80} And say, "My Lord, cause me to enter a sound entrance and to exit a sound exit and grant me from Yourself a supporting authority."

I suggest,
{17:80} And say, "Lord, make me enter an entrance of truthfulness and make me exit an exit of truthfulness, and set for me, from Your Own, a supporting authority."

Quote:
{17:81} And say, "Truth has come, and falsehood has departed. Indeed is falsehood, [by nature], ever bound to depart."

I suggest,
{17:81} And say, "Truth has come and falsehood has passed away. Indeed, falsehood is always passing away."
